DGFN will choose one non-profit organization to benefit from our collaborative efforts so please submit the most robust application that you can. Please plan to spend about 45 minutes on this application.
Simply fill out the form below telling us what you would do with a room full of experts for a day. We favour organizations with opportunities or challneges that will benefit from a solid day's work by an eclectic group of participants drawn from within and outside your organization. We also favour opportunities or challenges that need focused action rather than deep-thinks.
Our chosen project for Round 3 will fulfil the following criteria. They will be projects that:
1. Can be described in a sentence or two: "We really need an X in order to do Y. We need this because..."2. Haven't been tackled by your organization because you don't have the people, skills or time to do it - but aren't impossible. Think "we need a communications plan!" rather than "we need world peace!"3. Are holding your organization back.4. Have Board support. Get your Board to give the application a Yes! prior to sending it to us. That way we can roll up our sleeves and get down to work knowing we have their blessing!
If you have questions or difficulty with this application please contact us: email@example.com and we’ll get back to you asap.
Following submission of your application these are the next steps:
1. We will shortlist the top 3 clients who have the most potential to benefit from working with DGFN.2. If you are shortlisted, DGFN will contact you for a conference call to dig deeper into the opportunity and dilemma you are facing and get to know your team a little better.3. We will choose the winning client within a month of the application deadline.4. We will co-determine the rest of the schedule together.
a) access/mobilize resources within their organizationb) make logistical decisionsc) get people to do things - such as book meetings, get quick decisions made, send out invitations etc.
Please make sure this person agrees and understands the time commitment involved.
We envision that the entire process will look like this:
1. Work with the chosen organization's team in a discovery process of 3 to 5 hours plus email communications. 2. The DGFN team will handle the event design, directing and planning marketing, getting venues, food etc., approaching and curating experts. We will involve you in this process so that you are up to date and in the know!3. The week before the event we will be finalizing logistics and may need the main contact person to be available for final decisions and questions.4. The event itself will last approximately 8 hours, to be co-determined with your team. All identified participants from your organization must attend.5. The week following the event we will debrief the experience and the impact it had on your team. We estimate this last approximately 2 hours. All identified participants from your organization must attend.
